Job Description
PwC is driving major change across information and cyber security by building a centralized model to provide security services across the entire network of member firms.

Mandated at the network level, Network Information Security (NIS) operates outside Information Technology (IT) and is responsible for this major program initiative, from definition of the security strategy to the execution of the global Cyber Readiness Program, moving from local to globally-provided services.

Our mission is to identify, control, and reduce the attack surface across the network of member firms while increasing our adversaries cost of attack.

In order to deliver the Cyber Readiness Program, the NIS team is structured into the following Pillars:

- Information Security Risk and Compliance (ISRC)
- Chief Information Security Office (CISO)
- Security Architecture, Engineering, Innovation and Transformation (SAEIT)
- Cyber Security Services
- Strategy and Alliances
- Chief of Staff

NIS is redefining cyber security on a global scale at PwC. Our mission protects 223,000 PwC members across 157 member firms worldwide, as well as our global clients.

If you are seeking an exciting career with the scope to grow your cyber security skills through major change on a global scale, then NIS will empower you to do so.

If you love the strategic side of information security this is the place to be. Within ISRC we work to create the global information security governance framework within PwC. Management of information security risks is imperative to our mission and ISRC sets the minimum baseline for information security across the network of member firms. Identification, tracking and mitigation of risk through an enterprise risk register is the overall goal for the function, enabling PwC to have full visibility into potential information security risks across our estate. Delivering a business first framework aligned to industry standards in information security enables NIS to coordinate risk management and compliance efforts across the Network of firms.

The Information Security Cyber Readiness Red Team is responsible for performing quality assurance testing to ensure that IT and NIS solutions, operations, and program delivery meet set service standards, and for maintaining and communicating an appropriate system-wide view of threat-driven risks across data centers, business units, etc. throughout the PwC network of member firms.
